Arrived at PS HQ around 11am. They break up the interview into 4 portions. HR interview, HR presentation, facility tour, sim evaluation. I did the HR interview first and questions that were asked were pretty standard.  Then a scenario where the PIC is flying an approach what sorts of things as the FO am I looking for? If he goes below the MDA what do you do? What if after you let him know to go missed he continues even further? What do you do? They concluded the HR interview by allowing me to ask questions of which I had a few. HR interview was probably where I preformed best. You have to remember that at PS you're the point of contact for all customers. They really want to see what you'll be a good... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Apr 27, 2022 To date, I have only conducted the technical interview. I was provided a technician package via email which included the following: 7 IAPs, 2 SIDs, 1 STAR, 1 AP Diagram, and 1 JEPP AP Info Sheet. I was told to study those and that the interview would last about 25-30 min. The interview was conducted via Microsoft Teams. The interviewer was very nice, but fairly direct and to the point without any feedback on how the questions were answered. During the interview I was asked to brief a...

  2. Apr 12, 2022 I applied online and was invited to interview at a hiring event at one of their new operating bases. The event was three parts: an HR interview, a technical interview and a simulator. The HR interview was what you would typically expect: questions about yourself, your career, why you think you would be a good fit.  The technical interview was very straightforward. The bulk of them were just reading Jeppesen plates and questions pertinent to different parts of a procedure. I was also... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Mar 19, 2022 I had the opportunity to interview on the spot at the WAI conference. I took the shot but was definitely not as prepared as I should have been. I was expecting the hr portion to help get me through the interview but it was 100% technical. I am a cfii but have never had the opportunity to have an actual instrument student, so I have been out of practice for a couple years (excuses, excuses). I highly recommend taking a few weeks to prepare for this one if you are not so instrument proficient... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Mar 09, 2022 My technical interview was fairly straight forward. I was asked to brief an ILS approach using Jepp plates. If you don’t fly IFR often, I’d probably get a refresher. They will send you a file with 10 or so approaches, SID’s and STAR’s so review those heavily. The assistant chief pilot I interviewed with asked a few simple IFR questions like what I would do if I lost my glide slope on an ILS, and what the takeoff mins were for a runway on a departure procedure. The... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Feb 16, 2022 Just as the others say. Really easy technical interview; very manageable with laid back interviewer. Seemed to be big on circling approaches and medical certificate duration/class. Then, in-person interview with quick simulator evaluation. Simulator evaluation was looking for knowledge of instrument flying such as ability to read directions and do what is on the plate. Don't worry about actually flying the sim; sims just suck and aren't and aren't anything like a real airplane. It's cool... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Feb 09, 2022 Straight up to the point interview I got a call for one of the Assistant Chiefs to set up a time for the technical portion of the interview through Microsoft Teams. About a week before the time of the interview I was sent an email with 5 different plates SIDs STARs Approach plates and an airport diagram. During the technical interview he asked me a single question from each plate and as long as your studied Jepp Charts you'll be fine. After that about a week later I got a phone call to set...

  7. Nov 17, 2021 Good experience - need to know your instrument procedures and refs as they do a lot of IFR to minimums. No “gotcha” questions, just good solid knowledge required. Everyone I’ve met at the company has been great - really good company to work for :) They have upgraded their pay scales and incentives in the last 6... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Nov 09, 2021 Microsoft teams interview with assistant Chief pilot of the PC-12 program, very relaxed. Gave me an overview of the process, timing, types of flights in the PC-12 and career potential. Asked 2 or 3 questions on each chart, no “gotcha” questions, just want to make sure you know your instrument procedures well and can read approach, departure, arrival and airport charts. Gave me an opportunity to ask questions, and answered all of them clearly and thoroughly. I had a good... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Oct 20, 2021 Everything on the gouge was pretty much what was asked. Everyone I met at the interview were great. They were straight forward and friendly. We were broken up into groups with HR interview, tour, sim evaluation, and HR presentation all occuring in a cycle. The sim was a SID out of Teterboro then a VOR into JFK. Very straightforward. Good luck... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Oct 15, 2021 First there was a remote technical interview with about 10 or so questions regarding jeppessen approach plates given to me before the meeting which was via online. In person portion took place in Portsmouth and consisted of an Hr interview with about 4 to 5 questions(view the study guide of this website).  Then a simulator evaluation....
